via the hardest working editor in the Information Security/Cyber Security/Physical Security space - William Knowles - the Senior Editor of Infosec News, comes an announcement report from the Department of the Army's U.S. Army Cyber Command in which, the publication of the DoD Identity Awareness and Protection Management Guide has been made generally available for public download.

via Heather Kuldell, reporting for DefenseOne, comes the sorry tale of the fundamental failure of information security capability, this time at the Department of Defense, and revolving around the lack of control of what bits are installed on the Department's networks worldwide. All this, via the latest Department of Defense Office of the Inspector General's Report, DoD Management of Software Applications DODIG-2019-037. Astounding.
via Lawrence Abrams, writing at his web property Bleeping Computer, comes superlative reportage, targeting flaws in the United States Ballistic Missle Defense establishment and Infrastructure. The news source? None other than the US Department of Defenses' "Inspector General's Report DODIG-2019-034 Security Controls at DOD Facilities for Protecting Ballistic Missle Defense System Technical Information". Just a Little Light Reading for the holidays, eh?
